Darla, she's precious!!!! HOPE must be "the" word, cause I posted a little "HOPE" on Brown Sugar Baby Brushes about an hour ago.

My "hope" is that we all as a nation can rise above the forces which constantly try to divide us. I think artists have the jump on this though, as it is our creative spirit which unites us above all else.

HUGS Darla .. your art is inspiring.

Darla, I 'HOPE' you know how much you mean to me!! =)

Hope is absolutely beautiful!

What do I hope? I hope for, hmmm, I hope for so many things - far too many to list here, I hope for good health and true happiness for everyone!
